How to Overcome FOMO

  1. Accept Your Status. Admit that you feel like you might be missing the next awesome thing.
  2. Realize You’re Looking at the Greatest Hits. Everyone else only shares his or her biggest hits as well. It’s also good to remember that it’s extremely easy to manipulate “reality.”
  3. Disconnect. Turn off notifications for your social apps. If there is a person in particular who sets your FOMO on fire, don’t be afraid to unfollow that person to save your sanity.
  4. Live in the Present. Make a list of all the things you wish you had time for: learning a new language, finally reading the book club selection, volunteering. 

So get out there and start living your life, and while you’re at it, practice some JOMO.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

FOMO  is a form of social anxiety — a compulsive concern that one might miss an opportunity or satisfying event, often aroused by posts seen on social media websites.

The emotion at the root of FOMO is fear. Fear is an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. 

One way is to swop FOMO for JOMO, the “joy of missing out.”

FOMO is not just wondering what other people think of your experiences and choices that you post on social media.
